Mopey Ms Smithy

My submission for the Illustration Friday theme this week: Stitch

Mopey Ms Smithy (acrylic on an 8 x 8 inch stretched canvas)

"I would go out tonight, but I haven't got a stitch to wear"
- The Smiths

So Mopey bitterly contemplates an evening of baking cupcakes.
Brooding aurally accompanied by the melancholy of Morrissey.
Mopey finally found comfort & happiness in the sweet solitude
of devouring 12 delicious cupcakes without having to share any.
& shortly after endured a lengthy & painful sugar induced stitch.
Or it may have been indigestion...

cute, poor Mopey, after eating 12 cupcakes, I wouldn't be able to fit in anything.

Cute picture! I love your characters' amount of hair- lotta hair, little face. Really cute.

That's too cute! It reminds me of a Blythe doll, do you know those?

Hey Harriet said...

Tizzalicious - Yes I do know of Blythe dolls. I adore them! As does Mopey. Mopey finds the comparison very flattering. & Mopey thanks you very much ;)

That's so amazing that we both thought of The Smiths for this topic. "The Smiths" would be a great IF topic, but I doubt that the majority of people are into them. They're one of my tip-top favorites. To me, Morrissey's lyrics are not depressing, but funny.

Your dog constellation is so funny! I love the comic strip. It makes me want to do one, too, just for fun.
